Ansys FEA 104

Ansys Parametric Design Language (APDL) Training Course

Course Overview:

This course provides a fundamental foundation for Ansys Mechanical APDL (Ansys Parametric Design Language).  Coursework includes tutorials in Mechanical APDL so students can learn and understand the classic methodologies and interface.  This course covers an extended set of the material taught in the APDL portion of our FEA 103 Ansys Mechanical Workbench and APDL Introductory course.


Who should take this course:

  • New engineers looking to learn how to get started with APDL
  • Engineers who are looking for a refresher and desire to re-learn introductory methods and concepts of APDL

When you complete the course you will:

  • Receive an official certificate of completion with professional development hours that can qualify for the continuing education requirements upon renewal of a PE license in most states.
  • Become competent in using MAPDL with regard to:
    • GUI Operations
    • Select Login and picking
    • Geometry import
    • Meshing and element attributes
    • Boundary conditions and load application
    • Choosing appropriate solvers
    • Postprocessing
    • APDL command syntax and parameters
    • Interaction with Workbench Mechanical via command snippets
    • Modal and mode superposition in harmonic response analysis
    • Nodal coupling and constraint equations
    • Contact and bolt pretension
